The GoPro Hero line of compact action and sports cameras is often seen as the best go-to compact action camera. The cameras have very great image quality and build durability to protect the camera from external elements when brought out into sporting and active events
The fourth generation of GoPro Hero cameras, the GoPro Hero 3+, further improves on its predecessor, delivering a superior product. The first few differences is immediately noticeable with the GoPro Hero 3+ cameras when compared to the previous iterations of the Hero lineup of action cameras: The GoPro Hero 3+ cameras are 15% smaller and 20% lighter. This makes the cameras even more portable and even easier to attach to mounting points without causing too much stress on the points – or even affecting the balance of the wearer or object that is holding the camera. The Hero 3+ also features a waterproof enclosure so that it can record underwater. Like previous generations, the Hero 3+ comes in two different editions: the Hero 3+ Black and the Hero 3+ Silver.
The Super Camera of the Hero 3+ Black
The GoPro Hero 3+ Black's main feature is of course in the camera department. The camera that sits on the front panel of the GoPro Hero 3+ Black is undoubtedly one of the best in the class of action cameras, delivering up to Ultra High Definition 4K resolution recording, and up to a whooping 240 FPS (frames per second) depending on the selected recording resolution.
The camera lens is able to capture video in incredible clarity as well as vibrant and rich colors. And for those who are wondering, yes – the hallmark fish-eye effect from the super wide-angle lens is present on the GoPro Hero 3+ Black. The Hero 3+ Black records audio through a mono-input microphone, but features wind noise reduction so that the video viewers will not feel encumbered by the loud roar of wind as the camera partakes in the owner's sports.
Out of the Box
Each Hero 3+ Black camera set comes with a bevy of accessories that can get you started almost immediately – you will still need to supply your own microSD card to the GoPro. In the box you will get the Hero 3+ Black camera, a waterproof case, two adhesive mounts, a mini-USB cable for charging, and a Wi-Fi remote and proprietary charging cable.
